RI Blood Center Lays Off 60 To Offset Cost Of New Babesiosis Test

RI Blood Center Lays Off 60 To Offset Cost Of New Babesiosis Test

Kristin Gourlay

The Rhode Island Blood Center will lay off 60 people by this fall. That's to help cover the cost of screening for a tick-borne disease that's on the rise in Rhode Island: babesiosis.

Babesiosis  causes flu-like symptoms in some, but it can be life-threatening for the elderly or people with weak immune systems. It spreads through tick bites and blood transfusions. It's become the top transfusion-transmitted disease in the country, and it's endemic in Rhode Island.

Society for Advancement of Scientific Hermeneutics (SASH)

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

May 17, 2015

 

Washington, D.C., May 17, 2015: Medical abuse-victims' rights group Society for Advancement of Scientific Hermeneutics (SASH), announces its Occupy the USDOJ protest beginning June 1, in Washington, D.C. This Occupy movement, led by a group of chronically ill and disabled activists, is a direct result of the medical abuse they say has been inflicted upon them by government and the medical/pharmaceutical corporate complex.

 

The Occupy leaders state in their criminal charge sheets that there is a common disease mechanism linking Lyme disease, ME/CFS, Gulf War Illness, Fibromyalgia and Autism. Furthermore, to expose such mechanism would reveal rampant fraud and racketeering within the CDC and other entities, as well as the cause of the autism pandemic. All abused patient groups are encouraged to join this peaceful but passionate protest on the steps of USDOJ,950 Pennsylvania Ave NWWashington,DCUSA , from June 1 until July 4.

 

Through a massive compilation of published scientific research and public-record documents, SASH makes a convincing case for Lyme Disease, ME/CFS, Gulf War Illness, Fibromyalgia and Autism sharing a common mechanism of fungal-induced immunosuppression, known to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as "PostSepsis Syndrome." They report that such immunosuppression leads to the chronic reactivation in the central nervous system of multiple viruses such as Epstein-Barr Virus, Cytomegalovirus and HHV-6, leading to cancers and an AIDS-like disease. SASH also shares evidence that the interaction of fungi with attenuated viruses in vaccine vials causes the reactivation of those viruses and ultimately, the diseases they are meant to prevent.

 

The group's primary charge centers on the USDOJ's failure to take action on a whistleblower complaint that was filed in July 2003 by Kathleen Dickson, a former analytical chemist at pharmaceutical giant Pfizer. Her complaint alleged that CDC officers, Yale University medical faculty and others committed research fraud to falsify the current, Dearborn case definition (2-tiered test standard) in order to falsify the outcomes of the OspA vaccines, namely LYMErix, which was pulled from the market after an FDA ultimatum to the manufacturer.

 

Ms. Dickson's complaint further alleged that the very same government employees who committed these crimes stood to gain substantial financial rewards from a monopoly on all tick-borne diseases, vaccines and test kits. Additionally, their falsification of the Lyme disease case definition and treatment guidelines have left 85% of actual Lyme sufferers unable to obtain diagnosis, treatment, or insurance coverage for their AIDS-and cancer-like illness.

 

An abundance of scientific and historical evidence is presented in the charge sheets. Many of the citations refer to the alleged criminals' own peer-reviewed, published research papers and patent documents, which paint a chilling picture of the extreme effort that SASH says has been made by the alleged criminals to deny basic healthcare to an estimated 30 million sufferers in the United States. They say that the extent of deceit and corruption, with intent to deny an illness, goes far beyond anything that occurred in the early days of AIDS activism.

 

They are calling on USDOJ to prosecute for the fraud and racketeering charges, which have left millions of people to suffer in isolation while being ridiculed by doctors, family members and employers as psychosomatic or lazy. The victims, often bankrupted by the high cost of out-of-pocket medical expenses, and unable to work due to illness, frequently commit suicide to escape their continuous denial of basic human rights.

Upcoming radio show about Lyme disease - July 8, 2015

It's Lyme Disease Season: What To Know About Contracting, Diagnosing And Treating The Disease -

The Diane Rehm Show http://thedianerehmshow.org/shows/2015-07-08/its-lyme-disease-season-what-to-know-about-contracting-diagnosing-and-treating-the-disease  

Around 300,000 people contract the tick borne disease every year. We discuss what you should know about contracting, diagnosing and treating Lyme disease.

This should be an interesting show.  Neil Spector, author of "Gone In A Heartbeat: A Physician's Search For True Healing," and Dr. John Aucott should have some interesting commentary. 

Dr. Spector's heart was so badly damaged by Lyme disease that a heart transplant was required to save his life. Dr. Aucott is a leading researcher, whose groundbreaking SLICE study focuses on the realities of treating chronic Lyme patients.  

Around 300,000 new cases of Lyme Disease are reported every year. And experts say the areas the tick borne disease is found is expanding. An update on contracting, diagnosing and treating Lyme disease.

Guests

  • Dr. John Aucott director, Lyme Disease Clinical Research Center at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. He is the president of the Lyme Disease Research Foundation. 
  • Dr. Sunil Sood chairman of pediatrics, Southside Hospital North Shore-LIJ Health System; attending, Infectious Diseases at Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York; professor of pediatrics and family medicine, Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine.

Australia (slowly) beginning a conversation about Lyme

An investigation into the existence of Lyme disease across Australia will be debated in State Parliament before the end of the year with Maitland MP Jenny Aitchison calling for the ­government to consider recognition of the illness.

With the debate surrounding the controversial tick-borne illness ­gathering momentum, Ms. Aitchison has moved a three-point motion ­imploring the government to listen to the plight of sufferers.

Lyme bill passes in Maine!





Today, LD422, An Act To Improve Access to Treatments for Lyme Disease, silently passed into law. The Governor took no action on it and it has passed its required waiting period since Enactment by the House and Senate. Yes, indeed, it is law. It still needs to wait its required 90 days from the adjournment of the Legislature before it fully takes effect.
I want you to fully absorb what this means. The very first time we introduced a doctor protection bill in Maine, this group was able to shepherd that bill through Committee (boy, was that a battle), through the House, and through the Senate with overwhelming victories in both bodies of the Legislature. 
The Legislative Working Group, made up of 8 women from around the state, along with tremendous help from our bill's primary sponsor, Rep. Deb Sanderson, a tremendous idea from Rep. Ryan Michael Fecteau, in consultation with Rep. Sanderson, to get the bill out of Committee, and with help from our lobbyist friend, Bill Whitten, passed this bill into law by overcoming MaineHealth (the Maine consortium of hospitals), Maine Medical Association (loosely speaking, Maine doctors "union"), Infectious Disease doctors in Maine (effectively, IDSA of Maine) and Maine Board of Licensure in Medicine. We appreciate all the contact that the public made with your legislators. You most certainly made a difference. 

Today, David beat Goliath!

-The Legislative Working Group

Here is the language that was in the final draft.......ND's, PA's and NP's were negotiated out of the language.

2. Lyme disease treatment. A physician licensed under this chapter may prescribe, administer or dispense long-term antibiotic therapy for a therapeutic purpose to eliminate infection or to control a patient's symptoms upon making a clinical diagnosis that the patient has Lyme disease or displays symptoms consistent with a clinical diagnosis of Lyme disease. The physician shall document the clinical diagnosis and treatment in the patient's medical record. The clinical diagnosis must be based on knowledge obtained through medical history and physical examination only or in conjunction with testing that provides supportive data for the clinical diagnosis.
